Default Advice on 2003 Ranger XL

Wanted to get some advice concerning a 2003 Ranger XL that's for sale. It has a 2.3L engine with 5spd manual. The body is in great shape but has 184K. Tires are new and the interior is great. I wanted to get some opinions of the vehicle and if $3500 is too much! I plan on using the vehicle to go back and forth to work (12 miles a day) and the ocassional trip to Home Depot. Any advice on this purchase and what to look for when I test drive it would be much appreciated!

Here is the link to the truck:

talk him down to 2900 and itd be a different story but once you hit that 190 or 195k the 200k problems might start cutting in, not to say they will there are plenty of guys with these motors on here above 200,00 way above but this is something you must consider
